Deep eutectic solvents (Ionic liquids)(DESs), a new type of low cost and eco-friendly solvent, have fascinating rising interest in chemistry. To recapitulate the properties and significance of deep eutectic solvents (DESs), this review focus on characteristics of deep eutectic solvents, as well as their applications in electrochemistry, catalytic activity, biodegradability, bio-catalysis, as aromatic hydrocarbons, extraction and separation. The existing data and references are appraisal to go over the developments of DESs.
